Go for gold with Olympic entertainment ideas | News | MN2S Talent

The 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics were a triumph for British sport and the two events unveiled a wealth of talented athletes to the public. The exceptional standard of athletes from every discipline and sport fostered an interest and appreciation that, over three years later, continues unabated. There is no doubt that sporting celebrities have always been one of the most popular choices for corporate events, but with the already wide selection of talent shifting to accommodate a wealth of new stars following the Games, the options are even more exciting.

Many of these talented individuals are available to speak at corporate events, regaling audiences with the tale of their Olympic and Paralympic journeys. These passionate athletes will touch upon their achievements, disappointments and the motivation necessary to reach the top of their individual sport. For this reason, sports stars make excellent choices for corporate events. Who better than those who have achieved official recognition, winning medals and breaking records, to inspire your delegates? By reflecting upon how they have overcome obstacles and had to rely upon their own passion and work ethic to achieve all that hey have, these speakers can provide a strong inspirational and motivational element to their talk, all the while demonstrating the core corporate skills of resolve, discipline and conviction.

Many of these Olympic successes have gone on to inspire sport within their own communities, or become ambassadors for their sport in an effort to inspire young people to remain involved in sport. MN2S represents a number of sporting talent available to book for corporate events and entertainment. These stars include Greg Rutherford, Andrew Osagie, Andy Turner, Chris Tomlinson, Dalton Grant, Dame Mary Peters, Dan Greaves, Daniel Purvis, Derek Redmond, Dwain Chambers, Hannah Whelan, Iwan Thomas, Jermaine Olasan, Joey Duck, Kelly Sotherton, Mark Lewis-Francis, Michael Johnson, Pete Waterfield, Sharron Davies, Sophie Hosking and Zoe Smith.

Certain names are synonymous with athletic and sporting success and the following continue to make an impact not only through their guest speaking, but also through their involvement with the general public.

Sally Gunnell is a former track and field athlete who has been awarded both an MBE and OBE for her significant services to sport. Gunnell stands out from the crowd for her exceptional attainment of the Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth titles. At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Gunnell took home the gold medal for the 400m hurdles and it was in this same event that she broke the world record in addition to her Olympic title.

Upon retirement, Gunnell made a smooth transition into broadcasting, but is also extremely well known for the businesses that she runs alongside her husband. Gunnell champions health, fitness and well-being in the workplace, and works closely with businesses to achieve this goal. She is also a charismatic motivational speaker who is a popular choice for corporate events.

Christine Ohuruogu, MBE is a current World and former Olympic and Commonwealth Champion and is a very familiar face in British athletics. Ohuruogu became even more revered by the British public following her performance in the London 2012 Games, when she won a silver medal in the 400m. In spite of her extensive success on an international scale, Ohuruogu remains active in her local area, and is still a member of her local sporting club. She has also written a series of books, “Camp Gold”, about a young girl who is a budding athlete, and this is just one part of her efforts to inspire young girls to get involved in sport.
